Ontario is offering a full tuition refund to students who withdraw from this semester – because of the province’s five-week-long college strike.

Students will have two weeks from the time classes resume  tomorrow – to decide whether or not they want to continue with the condensed semester.

The Ministry of Advanced Education says students will also be eligible to receive up to $500 – for unexpected costs incurred because of the labour dispute – such as childcare fees, rescheduled transportation tickets – or rent.

College faculty in Ontario are back in their schools today – after the strike was ended over the weekend with back-to-work legislation.

The 12,000 professors, instructors, counsellors and librarians were on strike since October 15th.

Ontario’s Liberal government first tried to introduce and pass the back-to-work legislation Thursday night – but the NDP forced the legislature to sit through the weekend to debate the bill – ultimately passing it Sunday afternoon.
